Sadayatana

John Tocher surveys the free music landscape for new and old releases encompassing the realms of avant garde, experimental, electronic, musique concréte, industrial, dada-ist music. A transplant from the Los Angeles area, he now makes his home in southeast Texas near the border with Louisiana --deep in swamp country, where the ambiance is enhanced by cicadas and the occasional hurricane.

Ayn says: "When I caught Pico Henry I thought I was just going to take him to the humane society (2 cats already). They asked for a name when I signed him in and I was studying for my ARRL exam... so I almost said pico fared, but thought they would mess it up and I said Pico Henry... then they said they would have to put him down due to the mange and being super feral...so I brought him home. It was tough and now he is super sweet! When I am depressed, I think, if Pico Henry could make...

It's that time of year again... you know --turkey time. Except when you're a vegetarian you have to settle for tofu-turkey. If you can get it. Otherwise it's more like a biscuit, some mashed potatoes and cranberry something. It can suck being vegetarian, but never worse than on thanksgiving. I spent it in a flooded laundromat cleaning my socks. Which was good cause I needed to replace them after the water invaded my shoes. For this show I tried to concentrate on the dark side of the earth...

Starting with an hour long piece by Palancar that reminds me of Eno's bell studies and experiments I did inspired by same. Most of the rest of the show is devoted to dark ambient releases from the dna-productions netlabel. And finishing with a game of tag between To Repel Ghosts and Nagual Art --this is as christmas-y as I will be getting. * Palancar: Singularity * DJ Speaks Epsilon Eridani: Lamentos Lejanos * Epsilon Eridani: Falling Asleep * Epsilon Eridani: Unknown Message Received From A...

Seque mixing Gaston Arevalo’s release “Marea” into a couple tracks by Russian emusician Slow and then into a long Saluki Regicide track. The second of three by Saluki Regicide in the webbed hand rain series. I follow up with a few odd tracks and some recent releases from Dark Winter netlabel. One of which causes some moaning (in the chatroom) about the moaning in the song. All in a day’s work… * Gaston Arevalo: Marea * Gaston Arevalo: Hielo Norte * Gaston Arevalo: Latitud * Gaston...

Earlier in the week I emailed Gastón Arévalo asking him to release his live version of his Marea release as Creative Commons music --so I could play it on my show. Yay! He did, so that's how I started this week. The rest of the show is a mix of tracks from the Dark Winter and eg0cide netlabels. Both labels are kind enough to release all their tracks as Creative Commons share and share alike. Allowing me to remix and adapt, provided that attribution is provided. Thank you Dark Winter and...

This is my Christmas show. Allan Goodman is doing a show in my slot this week. It's his birthday. Happy birthday Allan. Merry Christmas. This was an unscheduled raid on stillstream.com Was having some trouble with my microphone (again.) Instead of voice-overs back announcing the tracks there is some ambient background field recordings. It's like watching a football game without the announcers. Which if I had to watch a football game I would want it to be without announcers. So maybe this is a...

New year's eve at Stillstream.com with Sadayatana at the helm. Why this brings to mind the ending of "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari", I'm not sure I can say... Starting with this cool release from A Quiet Norway called "Live!", the show breaks into some film music from an Italian Giallo that never was . My microphone fails me again (actually it's me failing to setup my mic properly, I'll get the hang of this eventually --I'm used to a radio studio what can I say?) A track...

Playing a lot of smaller tracks makes for a longer time editing the resulting playlist, makes for a later night getting the podcast ready before bed. Remind of this next week as I'm doing my show... I'm thinking of using this Flores Funebres track "Depressive Personality Disorder" as kind of a theme song. I suppose I should email and ask the artist if it's ok. Nice short evocative track. Very cinematic. This week I'm struck again by the quality of releases on the ambientaria netlabel....

Also a couple tracks from the new release from Elias Moreno . I took the liberty of mixing (briefly) some H.P. Lovecraft over the top of one track. Since we had been talking about Lovecraft earlier in the chatroom --and Elias Moreno was kind enough to release his music CC share-a-like. Very nice.

Wow. Double wow. Nice live set by Dan Minoza, but then there were a few glitches. I think maybe streaming from Philly to Texas at 320kbps was not a good idea. What can I say, it worked when we were testing it. We'll have to do more tests later. I like this live stuff. I hope there will be more...

New releases from Earth Mantra , Webbed Hand Records , Senile Dementia Productions and Kopp netlabels. A mostly russian flavored show. What can I say... so much good dark ambient music is from Russia. I downloaded [again...] the entire catalog from Senile Dementia Productions . And I have to say... this was not fun. It was track by track one at at time. I don't understand why they don't make their music available at archive.org. But I was pleased to see they are now sharing the music clearly...

This is an impromptu show from this past Wednesday night. It was more of an experimental, just for fun testing type deal, not really meant to be podcast. But then disaster struck --my computer died. If you were listening Friday at the regularly scheduled time for Sadayatana you may have noticed it was a repeat of a previous show. Well now you know why. But the podcast must go on, so here is the show from Wednesday. Computer repairs going good. See you next week. start artist title 02:38 Louigi...

Starting with a mashup of a new track by Mystified: Satyr's Drone. I paired it with a homemade 78 I found on archive.org. I think they made it for their loved ones in the war. It's cute but also sounds like the Satyr's of Mystified's track so I went with it. Especially all the laughing. Then we had a live (with one overdub) performance by Muied Lumens. A track he prepared specially for this show. I had listened to it a couple times in the car --but really didn't get into until I listened to it...

One of the more experimental shows --with the occasional beat. Sort of an audio investigation of the ambient side of " witch house ". According to Wikipedia Witch House "...features a fusion of techniques rooted in Swishahouse hip-hop -- sluggish tempo with skipping, stop-timed beats -- coupled with elements from genres such as noise, drone, and shoegaze." A semi disastrous show this one. I was playing for two hours without actually being connected to the stream. The tags...

This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes. Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes , but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on " Calm, Happy Whispers ", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt. Backyard Ghost rocks (in an ambient way of course...)...

Well, rather it's taken from that material. It comes to just thousands and thousands of tracks. My favorite discovery this time was the music of Morpheus and Chaos Condensed . The show starts with a "mashup" of some of this material and other tracks are found throughout. Good stuff. So this show is kind of a take on the...

Some tracks from the new Joe Frawley release: " Curious Perspectives ". Love his music. Thanks for making it Joe. Excerpt from an unreleased track from Disturbed Earth , Shane Morris , and Kirill Platonkin : "Rolling Stock". Very cool. Play this some more when it comes out. Hopefully on Buddhist on Fire . Hehe. Red Fog's " Memory Of The Ferrofluids " --oh man those water samples. So groovy. Thanks to Shane Morris for providing many of the shortwave samples used....

The show starts with the title track from Kirill Platonkin's release " Silence is Important ". Kirill said: "...the latest one (Silence Is Important) includes some experiments with throat singing...". Experiment? Success! Had thought to do like a Halloween show with clinking and clanking and like you know. But it kind of rubbed against my ideas about dark ambient. I feel like it's a misunderstood genre in that people expect it to be creepy and dark, etc. It can be but I feel...

Show starts with a music box winding up, then rolls right into some Coil . When I saw the way the video started with the word "something" repeated and a ring of fire that pulsates I thought well... I can use that. Was going to rip the audio out from the video but it's there as flac and mp3. Ready? go! Played most of the new release from Subterrestrial: " Dead But Dreaming ".

Despite the fact that the whole situation was garbed in a wrapping woven of dreams , and wholly at odds with reason, it nonetheless took control of me with a despotic force. My heart became filled with the delights and pains of living in expectation. That whole night I did not sleep a single moment, as my imagination went roaming through the vastness of time that comprised past, present, and future together, drunk with the intoxication that total freedom brings. - Naguib Mahfouz, The Time and...

...like knight and maiden meeting to exchange vows amongst haunted ruins . The starlight was good enough for that story, a light so faint and remote that it cannot resolve shadows into shapes, and show the other shore of a stream. I did look upon the stream that night and from the very place; it rolled silent and as black as Styx: the next day I went away, but I am not likely to forget what it was she wanted to be saved from when she entreated him to leave her while there was time. She told me...

At some point after moving out to Houston I heard about a genre of music called " Chopped and Screwed ". I always try to burrow into whatever local scene exists. If there is not support for the local scene there is no music scene.... Ya anyway, looking forward to my first taste of "Chopped and Screwed", when I finally heard some I was sorely disappointed. It's music that sounds like you're overdosing on cough medicine ya see. What the hell is the crap? [I asked myself.]...

Thanks to C.P. McDill for recording some of his 78s especially for Sadayatana. You'll hear one at the end of this show. C.P. McDill says: "Recorded off a totally acoustic wind-up gramophone... a portable Phonola from the 30s, popular with picnickers and soldiers. in good shape..." "I used to take it to Prospect Park... someone asked me to turn it down. I said 'it only has one volume: ON'..." And to all the artists who release their music with a creative commons license:...

Show starts with a collage and looping of tracks by Universos Virtuales (fantastic!) and generally moves into drone territory and layering of samples taken from the Librivox recording of H.G. Wells' " The Island of Dr. Moreau ". The samples were woven into the mix via a script that selected then at random then delayed the selection and playing of the next sample by a random interval. It worked well but you can hear a sample colliding with the voice over / podcast id. Oh well, this is...

Mostly this show is about automated random whispers over drones and stretched out classical music. Much inspiration is taken from the music of György Ligeti . It works fairly well and I enjoy result. I think you will too. Whispers provided by Ayn Morgan reading (whispering) from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's " The Little Prince ", Charles Baudelaire's " Flowers of Evil " and T.S.

Some tracks from the new Joe Frawley: 13 Houses and The Mermaid . Very groovy as usual. Extensive use was make of the soundtracks of videos by Lifeloop and friends. At first I was just going to play this material as I find it rather compelling but then I discovered it's a type of electro-acoustic music called "Salon Bruit". I'll have to look into this more later but whatever it is, it made up a substantial part of the show. I like it. New Mystified was featured as well. Gotta love...
